F. Scott Fitzgerald
challenges and difficulties
Fitzgerald both yearns for, and fears, being emotionally vulnerable with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting himself be known in a deep way does not come easily to Francis Scott, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. F. Scott Fitzgerald is very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, is an important task for Fitzgerald.
His attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, F. Scott Fitzgerald may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to him. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, Francis Scott may tenaciously cling to his grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.
His overall outlook on life is serious, and F. Scott Fitzgerald may feel that life or God will punish him if he does not watch his steps!
He is serious and sincere about his interests, does not accept superficial answers and is not easily placated. Francis Scott wants his inspirations to become reality and he does not mind upsetting a few apple carts in the process. F. Scott Fitzgerald becomes impatient with others for being hesitant to implement new ideas and take action, and his occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than good.
F. Scott Fitzgerald tends to be his own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of himself and harshly criticizing or persecuting himself when he does not measure up. Perhaps circumstances or relationships in his life have been extremely difficult and demanding, reinforcing Francis Scott's belief that he must struggle alone.
He is capable of tremendous effort and of overcoming great odds and handicaps. Through these efforts F. Scott Fitzgerald develops his power and inner strength. However, F. Scott Fitzgerald should not make life harder than it is. He must give himself permission to let up sometimes, and to realize that he is only human.
He is inclined to be quite reserved and cautious in his relationships with others. But Francis Scott may also have an exaggerated regard for other peoples views and could give them more credence than they are worth.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which F. Scott Fitzgerald instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction F. Scott Fitzgerald needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
F. Scott Fitzgerald's path lies in cultivating idealism and humanitarian feelings, being concerned with how Fitzgerald's actions impact the world at large, perhaps becoming more aware of the social implications of Fitzgerald's life style and personal choices or becoming active politically. Participating in organizations that support Fitzgerald's ideals is one way to do this.
When under stress he is likely to become overly focused on himself and his own little world.
Instead of "how will this benefit or hurt me?" Fitzgerald's focus needs to shift to "how will this affect us all?".
Ideally, F. Scott Fitzgerald needs to strike a balance between doing for himself and doing for others, by discovering how Fitzgerald's unique gifts can benefit others.
It is in his relationships with others that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. There is a dynamic balance (or conflict) within F. Scott Fitzgerald between acting spontaneously and being true to himself versus modifying himself or his behavior to suit others. F. Scott Fitzgerald seesaws between being inordinately concerned with his self to being overly conciliatory and concerned with others' needs, rights, or opinions about him. Learning to act authentically and forthrightly regardless of possible consequences is Fitzgerald's task.
His conversations with others tend to be lively and productive but could also easily turn into arguments. The subject of Fitzgerald's discussions is likely to be about working on and incorporating educational matters.
He enjoys relationships with others who can tune into the spiritual world and F. Scott Fitzgerald is likely to join groups or associations that sponsor psychics and that explore the connection with karmic influences.
